Burcu Emeç

(She / Her / Elle)

Intimacy Coordinator

Toronto, ON 


Burcu Emeç (she/her) is a queer Kurdish-Canadian intimacy coordinator certified by SAG-AFTRA accredited Intimacy Directors and Coordinators (U.S.) and Intimacy Coordinators Canada. She began her career as an actor and has since worked across various mediums, including live art, theatre, film, and TV. 

As an intimacy professional, Burcu has collaborated with major studios and networks such as CBS, Lionsgate (Starz), and Paramount+. She received training from HBO’s Lead Intimacy Coordinator Alicia Rodis (The Deuce, Insecure, High Maintenance), the first to be hired by a major network, as well as with other top intimacy professionals like Claire Warden (Three Women, Gossip Girl) and Casey Hudecki (Infinity Pool, Sex/Life). Drawing from her rich experience both on- and off-camera, she brings over 15 years of diverse storytelling and a robust background in movement to support actors and directors alike. She also has a complimentary certification as an active listener that serves as a valuable resource to productions.

Beyond her role as an intimacy coordinator, Burcu is an accomplished theatre artist, garnering support from festivals and theatres across Canada. At the heart of her practice lies a persistent interest in the impact of collaboration on the creative process. This led her to work for several years at Articule, one of Canada’s most socially engaged artist-run centres, where she played a pivotal role in spearheading anti-harassment and anti-racist advocacy initiatives.
